Plus Size Wedding Dresses

Plus Size Wedding Dresses

Dresses, wedding or otherwise, are considered plus size at 14W and up. There are many styles, fabrics, and embellishments that are used in making plus size wedding dresses. They can also come in a variety of colors, such as the traditional white and off-white, less traditional colors such as blush and light purple, or even with black overlays.

What are some materials used to make wedding dresses?

Wedding dresses of any size may consist of the following materials and much more:

  • Batiste
  • Brocade
  • Faille
  • Gabardine
  • Jersey
  • Charmeuse
What fabrics should you consider for summer or winter?

Tulle or chiffon fabrics give a lightweight appeal to a wedding gown that may be just right for summer bridal events. Satin and taffeta materials are heavy and great for winter ceremonies. Organza fabric is a mixture of both lightweight and heavy material, which means that breathability and warmth are both benefits of this product.

How can you choose a style of wedding dress?

The design of your plus-size dress that will be most flattering depends on a few things such as the silhouette of the dress, the embellishments, and the style: a ball gown, a beaded gown, and so on. Namely, youll want to consider a plus-size wedding dress that accentuates your shape. Those curvaceous women with an hourglass shape may choose a design that hugs the form and has a sweetheart neckline to show off their bodys greatest assets. Those with pear-shaped body frames may elect to conceal their waists while accentuating the top halves of their bodies with gems that sparkle against their white or ivory bodice. Your body deserves to be shown in its best light with a gown that accentuates all of your positive attributes.

What is the difference between traditional and contemporary apparel?

A traditional-style wedding dress usually takes on the form of a white or beige gown with a veil. Contemporary styles of plus-size dresses may or may not be unpigmented and typically do not come with a veil. Some wedding dresses made in the contemporary fashion do not have a length that flows to the floor. These gowns instead stop just below the knee and have a snug fit that highlights a womans curves. Contemporary-style gowns that lean toward the style of traditional dresses may have hand-crafted designs with dashes of bold color.

What kind of fabric is suitable for tropical weather?

Those getting married on an island or at another tropical location may want to select fabrics for their wedding day that are lightweight. Bamboo is a great choice of material since it gives you the freedom to place garments underneath that may be more conducive to beachside weather. Soya fabric is made from the hulls of soybeans and is another eco-friendly way to go for a lightweight plus-size wedding dress, and it comes with benefits similar to those of bamboo.
